Museu Episcopal de Vic

Jug with a squat spherical body decorated with spiralling 'latticino' threads, with a cylindrical extension, widening to form the rim and with two large handles with pinched crests. The stand is trumpet-shaped with strengthened base. This example is testimony to the continuity during the 18th century of certain formative and decorative elements of Catalan glassware in the Venetian style of the previous two centuries. At that time, despite the popularisation of the shapes and the characteristic abandonment of Renaissance sophistication of the glassware influenced by Murano, the Catalan kilns kept certain aspects of that tradition active, superimposing them on objects of a marked autochthonous taste.
